Obama and McCain answer the question – does evil exist?

On July 16, I asked someone – anyone – to ask Obama one question. Does evil exist? It took about one month, but Rick Warren – during his Faith Forum Saturday night – asked both Obama and McCain the question. It’s a valid question and one that many liberals try to weasel out of.

Of course, Obama provided a very thoughtful answer that did not answer the question. When asked the question if evil should be ignored, negotiated with, contained or defeated, Obama said we should confront it. We should confront it? What the heck does that mean? As far as I can tell, that could mean that we yell at them from across the courtyard – leave us alone!

Yeah, that will work wonders.

McCain started his answer with a two words. Defeat it.

Obama is dangerous for America, and if elected he will be tested.

Obama answered…

Obama: “… Now, the one thing that I think is very important is for us to have some humility in how we approach the issue of confronting evil. You know a lot of evil has been perpetrated based on the claim that we were trying to confront evil… In the name of good and I think one thing that’s very important is having some humility in recognizing that. You know, just because we think our intentions are good doesn’t mean that we’re going to be doing good.”

He’s basically saying that the United States is perpeprating evil. Gateway Pundit asks if anyone is offended by that assumption?
